I haven't dropped off the face of the earth, I swear! All of the work I've been doing recently either doesn't legally belong to me, or I am bound by law not to talk about it or show it. Soooo.....yyyeah. But just to appease you all, have a gator! This one's part of pack (tribe? pod? herd?) of 4 others, done on commission for a prep school mascot/logo. Catherine Richards is the creative director, and all around great-gal-to-work-with. I finally learned vectors too, although in Photoshop. I haven't broken the cryptic Illustrator code yet, but that's on my list of things to do, in 6 weeks when I'm a free woman again.
